Class of 2017 standout Brian Bowen was among those who watched UK defeat Florida in Rupp Arena on Saturday to cap a perfect regular season.
Bowen — a 6-foot-7 prospect from Saginaw, Mich. — is considered a top-15 player in the sophomore class by all of the major recruiting services. ESPN ranks him as the No. 6 overall prospect in the class.
He was arguably the best player at the Fab Frosh Camp held in Lexington in the summer of 2013, an event that attracted many of the top rising freshmen from across the country. Bowen has also visited UK in the past.
Michigan State, Kansas, Louisville and Michigan are among the schools that have already extended scholarship offers. Bowen has visited nearby Michigan State several times, and many consider the Spartans to be the early favorite in his recruitment.
